Seasonal Produce Spotlight: Brussels Sprouts

The brussels sprout is an extremely under-appreciated vegetable in my book. I had never even had it until a few years ago (I’m nearly 50 years old!) because all I knew growing up was that it was to be avoided. It was the stuff that threats were made of – “You’d better behave, or we’ll have brussels sprouts for dinner.” I didn’t even know what they were, and I’m fairly sure that my mother has never cooked them.
